The first of the next-generation clean label solutions to be marketed worldwide is the Vcaps Plus Purple Carrot capsule, following the successful introduction of the Vcaps Plus Blue Spirulina capsule in Europe earlier this year. The high-performance capsule shell is made using plant-based hypromellose (HPMC) and water only, without any preservatives.
